Earlier this summer, I had the honor of being a guest on Paul Feiner’s radio show on WVOX, New Rochelle, NY. The show, “The Greenburgh Report with Town Supervisor Paul Feiner,” is a weekly broadcast which tries to inform listeners about various programs usually within the Rivertowns. Mr. Feiner has served as Town Supervisor since 1991. He had visited Cabrini Immigrant Services (CIS) to hear about the services that we offer to the immigrant population and at that time invited me to be a guest on his radio show.
Mr. Feiner was interested in the wonderful works that are being done at Cabrini of Westchester (COW) as well as CIS. He thought it would be great to spread the word about Cabrini. During the radio interview, I spoke about the nursing home as well as the different services that are offered through COW. I also spoke about Mother Cabrini and what a great example she is for immigrants. Mr. Feiner was very surprised to hear that Mother Cabrini not only lived in Dobbs Ferry but that she purchased the property that the nursing home is on. As he said, “Not many towns can boast of having a Saint who lived there!”
I was able to share about the programs being offered at CIS. Mr. Feiner, who is a strong advocate for Immigrants, was very pleased to hear about the programs offered for children as well as adults. He marveled at the fact that all of our services are free of charge. He truly saw how the mission of St. Cabrini is still alive and well today at CIS! Several times throughout the show, he said, “I know that St. Cabrini is looking down from Heaven and smiling at all of you as you continue her great works!”
It was both a pleasure and privilege to be asked to be on the show. It was an honor to be able to speak about Mother Cabrini and all the wonderful work that she began and that continues to be done in her name. ~ Lorraine Campanelli
